So much of Vermont is quaint and charming....come here for the flip side. Wine, booze and the beer is all along the right side as you enter. Front to back wall long coolers and shelving units. You will find well stocked and extensive choices from all the widely available Vermont options. Major regionals and national heavy weights. Also the typical Belg-Brit-Germ options. Heads up, I did notice some semi dusty bottles.
This place sells a ton of wine-Booze-beer to a thirsty college and younger local crowd. Friday night at about 7 pm was a dizzying scene of cases and handles of the hard stuff hastening out the door. They are worth stopping in to see what is locally available when in downtown Burlington. For more extensive options beer wise, I wouldn't leave the area without a stop at Winooski Bev., just about 7 minutes north of town

I am shocked that this place has a lower average rating than City Market. In my opinion it is FAR superior.
There is a huge amount of bombers here from across the word with a great selection of American micros. Definitely a lot to choose from here. All the regular VT locals are represented here along with some interesting selections from across the US.
The atmosphere is nothing special, but this is a bottle shop, not a bar, so the atmosphere means very little to me if the selection and quality is good, which it was here.
If you are in Burlington, don't skip this over on account of City Market.

I was looking for some local favs here the other day, I thought they had a pretty good selection of craft beer. Many cold bombers, alot of Belgians, some local stuff I had not seen in MA, but I was looking for some of the more obscure microbrews from VT and U did not come across any. I got a few McNeill's selections, and I remember their Rogue selection as being much more than I had seen anywhere else recently.
Prices seemed ok, they had bombers of Otter Creek Stout for $3, which seemed like a good price.
If I lived here I would frequent this place.

This place is a college store but the selection has been much better in the last few months. If you go during the day you can talk to the MGMT. the guy who does all the ordering is usually around and likes to talk to people who know what they are talking about. I was excited to see that they had 2 Brooklyn Black Oops left a few months ago and the guys was like wait i have one more in the back if you want it! Thank you. Also there is a tuff night MGMT person there named Tracy. I always ask her what is new that week and she points them out. It is a friendly place. Getting better.
